The teacher attempted to calm down the furious grandmother during her rant
The teacher says that they are discussing historical events, in an attempt to calm the furious relative.
‘Ma’am, we’re reading a story about a historical event, and the question that was presented to the students is: “What’s the most important historical event that’s happened in your lifetime?”‘
The relative was not soothed, replying: ‘Well, how did BLM show up?’
The teacher replies: ‘Your granddaughter brought it up.’
The students, looking on nonplussed, then discussed who – if any – raised the subject of BLM.
It was unclear where the exchange happened, or when.
